Laminate flooring has become a popular choice and there are some good reasons for this. First of all, laminate is strong and durable and resistant to wear. You can get a long warranty on laminate floors. Laminate is also resistant to stains and water spills and is easy to clean and maintain. Laminate is cheaper than hardwood and also does a good job of reproducing the look and style of hardwood. Laminate can also imitate stone or tile so you can always get the look you want.
On the negative side laminate is hard under foot and does not insulate well. Laminate flooring cannot be refinished in the manner that hardwood can and if there is damage the planks need to be replaced. However, there are more pros than cons and this is why laminate flooring is such a popular choice today.
